As only the luxury inspired marketing mavens at Goodwood could do, Rolls-Royce secured one of the highly-coveted sponsorships for the Tennis Classic held at The Royal Albert Hall, from Thursday the 30th of November, until Sunday, the 3rd of December.
The one-of-a-kind sporting fête featured a number of tennis legends including French Open winner Juan Carlos Ferrero, two-time US Open winner Pat Rafter, former World No.1 Marat Safin, 1984 Roland-Garros Doubles champion and current Celebrity MasterChef semi-finalist Henri Leconte, and—of course—British fan-favourite, Tim Henman.

In addition to the event being a fantastic opportunity for Rolls-Royce Motor Cars London to entertain a bevy of clients during the busy Christmas season, The Classic also doubled as a wonderful opportunity for the brand to showcase some of its finest carriages by chauffeuring players throughout the tournament.
Each day of the event featured two sessions of tennis—one in the afternoon, and in the evening—with the complete playing schedule as follows:
